Companies, etc.



Tracks 2-3 to 2-13 are previously unissued.
The music has been restored to the original order of the concert.

The personnel on track 2-16 is not listed, but there is a photograph taken on stage of the finale. Note that Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown and Herb Ellis are standing to the left. Presumably Louis Armstrong's rhythm section remained for the final number.

The concert was recorded on August 15, 1956, in Los Angeles, California, at the Hollywood Bowl.
